's capital. in the nearly seven weeks since the rampage in newtown, connecticut, silenced 27 lives, a national debate over guns has only grown louder and more urgent. there was a shooting just today in a middle school in southeast atlanta. a student was hit, so the need for action is clear. often, however, the debate ends in shouting and arguing. when is why we want to have a discussion that zeros in on key issues and what goals, if any, are actually achievable. we have many here with different experiences, different opinions and backgrounds, they're all represented in this room. gun control advocates, people opposed to greater gun control, victims of crime, people who use guns to protect themselves and their family. we start with a look at what is at stake. >> columbine, virginia tech, aurora, newtown, an all too familiar pattern, mass shootings followed by a national dialogue on one of the most polarizing issues in america, gun control, but any attempt to alter our relatively easy access to guns rarely gets off the ground. the last time federal gun control legislation was passed

're really hopeful the attention that's being paid to gun violence after newtown will help to bring more attention. and the group that we profiled at the very beginning, s.a.v.e., is group i spoke with. one of the things they're trying to do besides just trying to get more attention is also to try to jolt their own community out of an exhaustion and sense of numbness from dealing with all of these shootings all the time. because in that numbness, while it's certainly an understandable response to constant shootings, it creates a lack of action and they want to see more action from the ground-up, from the community-up. so that's one thing i'm seeing. the other thing is, i'm hearing frustration about it constantly being pegged as gang-related killings. what the community are experiencing are grandmothers dying, their babies dying. to keep calling it gang-related to them i think sounds like it's a way for community leaders or for the city leaders or for state leaders to act like they have some control over the situation. as opposed to really addressing the situation the way the community is

posthumously to the newtown teachers who died trying to protect their students at sandy hook elementary school. the announcement by the white house is jet another point of focus on gun violence. bringing the issue to the front of the news again. but that's been happening a lot these days. in fact, i think it is an important salient political point to note just how many days there have been since the mass shooting at sandy hook elementary school in which gun violence, gun policy, gun reform in one way or another has been a huge part of the day's news. it's not an accident that guns and gun violence have stayed in the news so much. it is very much by design that this is happening. the common wisdom, particularly the beltway common wisdom is that reform on the issue of guns is hard, if not impossible, to achieve. and that's in part because we'll get bored of even talking about this as an issue. it will fade away. what happened at sandy hook was terrible, but it will go down as just another one on a list of horrible gun massacres that have happened in the u.s. and yes, they are terrible and horrib

. >> you bet. >> and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. the town of newtown, connecticut has three detectives on its police force. and on december 14th, when calls started coming in about a possible shooting at the elementary school at sandy hook in newtown, one of the town's three detectives, a detective named jason frank, was off duty. he was not at work. so presumably he did not have his uniform on. we know he did not have his weapon with him. but he heard the call anyway and he drove to the scene. he drove to the school. now, at that point police had already found the body of the shooter. the young man who had ended the massacre when he shot and killed himself. so at that point police were making sure that there wasn't a second shooter. making sure that the massacre was over. and they were moving through the school methodically, door by door, clearing each room, making sure there were no other perpetrators on the loose. and of course getting the surviving kids and staff members out of that school to safety. this was the time we learned later when the police had to convinc
